A retro overload!
Back in June, Atari revealed Atari Mania, a collection of 150 microgames incorporating Atari classics from the 1970s and 80s, along with a robust storyline. The game is slated to release on Switch at some point this year, and it will be priced at $20. You can get a look at what it has to offer in today’s new trailer, which you can find out above.
In Atari Mania, you’ll step into the shoes of “Caretaker of the Atari Vault,” tasked with watching over the storehouse of retro-tastic Atari games. One night, a dead pixel appears, and then soon enough, all heck breaks loose! As you journey through the Vault, you find that familiar and beloved games have begun to warp, mutate, and meld into a series of increasingly wild challenges.
With over 150 lightning-fast microgames to master, you will have to beat killer combinations of well-known Atari properties, solve puzzles, complete challenges, and beat the clock, all with fun Atari easter eggs to uncover along the way. As you advance, you will complete runs of increasingly difficult microgames in randomly generated order, before facing a series of epic boss battles.
